    DVD came home from work with me today, just watched it and I have no idea what to think.

    Can anyone shed some light on it for me? I've got a strange 'over my head' feeling about it.

    No idea I started watching it and gave up to it after half an hour.

    I don't appear to be alone on the 'no idea' thing then! I don't think I like it.

    I'm dangerously tempted to sell it on (three other members of staff at work have!) - and that would mark the first time I've not kept a DVD I've bought.

    A gang of robbers are being tracked by a ruthless police officer that will stop at nothing to wipe them out.

    That pretty much sums it up. Tcheky Karyo was ace as the brutal copper, I thought.
    Monica Belluci fills out her role to my satisfaction too:p and Vincent Cassel.... well, he's just Vincent Cassel, he's the same in just about every movie he's in :laugh:

    I think it's a triumph of ultraviolent style over substance, it's just so way over the top in that (now) well trodden hyperstylised hi-octane flashy vulgar-looking visual banquet pop video way, I can't see anything in it not to like. Personally. It's an entire film for fans of the Casino shootout in 3000 Miles to Graceland

    Is it that weird French movie? Rented it on DVD and thought it was, well, weird.

    I got the plot, I was just expecting there to be a reason, ethic, moral or something behind it all. Dogs was cool so it didn't need a reason, but this just weirded me out.

    I saw this at some premier type thing years ago. What I got from it:

    The director had seen pulp fiction a few times and wanted to somehow show the world his laserdisc collection. So he made a film.
